This Sunday 15 February sees the final round of the Inter School Eliminator Series for the Western Cape taking place at Bloemendal Wine Estate. The farm manager, Lombard Loubser has dived in behind the event and suggested a awesome route which includes riding over the swimming pool! Riders are going to tackle a very mixed terrain course that will have a good combination of single track and skill testing obstacles but also wide open spaces to lay down the power with ample over taking sections.
It’s down to the wire with regards to the overall titles, there are no clear runaway winners in any of the age groups, so spectators are going to be treated to a hotly contested day of racing as riders battle it out to secure their chances of being crowned champion for 2015. In the schools title there is a three way chase between last years champions Hoérskool DF Malan, Paarl Boys High and Paul Roos Gymnasium who are all a bikes length ahead of the remaining 23 schools. The title for Overall Winning School is very sort after, especially now that Enjoy Fitness have put up R10 000 in custom cycling kit and Rayne Cam will be giving an action camera along with the trophy to the winning school.
Sunday promises to be action packed and exciting as riders chase each other around the course to get their hands on a lions share of the prizes. Apart from the podium finishers being showered in incredible product, there is a large number of raffle prizes made available by our incredible sponsors: Trek Bikes, Fox Racing, Enjoy Fitness, Rayne Cam, Skullcandy and OGIO. Along with our sponsors, local bike shops Olympic Cycles, Cycle Funatic and Sport World have come out to support the series and donated shop vouchers. We also have a private skills lesson from Chris Nixon Cycling Academy as well as two double weekend passes to Ultimate X (South Africa’s premium extreme sports festival).
Entries close tomorrow: Friday 13 February at 2pm, entries can be done ONLINE
